Thanks to everyone who supported the St Stephens day run in aid of the gym. This was once a great annual event in the village calendar and one in which we believe can grow. Tickets for all county board will be on sale shortly and available from all committee members. Your support is greatly appreciated and this fundraiser is the back bone of our GAA club. At our recent AGM it was decided to only affiliate two hurling teams and two football teams. Training will commence over the next number of weeks and all are encourage to focus on the year ahead and claim some silverware for the club.


The gym is coming along nicely and it is hoped to officially open on January 25.


Met last Friday after our Christmas break, we’re going to a disco this Friday in Ratheniska. Our committee of Ellen Hyland, Ellen Delaney, Emer Burke and Niamh Culleton will represent the club in Naas on Sunday at the Foroige regional conference.


Kettle bell classes in the hall every Monday and Wednesday night at 7.30pm. A great way to lose those Christmas pounds.
